Recently, I’m into this latest book of Sophie Kinsella ; remember me.
Quite expensive. I bought it for RM 74.90.
Should just wait for the Black Swan publication because it usually is much cheaper than the Bantam press…
But, I couldn’t wait anymore.
So, I spent almost half of the money mom gave me to buy a pair of shoes on this book ( actually, mom asked me to buy 2 pairs but because I wanted this book so much, I just bought one pair.. haha~ )
When mom asked me why I just bought one, I told her that I couldn’t find something that I like.. ( which is quite true. Just to buy this one pair, I had to go to several malls before I could really make up my mind..)
Ok back to the book.
It was not as I expected it to be.
I always love Sophie Kinsella’s book because in every of her book normally there’ll be a girl with such a bad attitude and crappy life and there’ll be a guy which is so determine and patient enough to deal and be with this type of girl.
But you can’t find that type of guy in this book.
It’s a little bit of disappointment for me though.
But, it’s not that bad.
It’s still a good piece of work.
The whole story is about a girl who owned a crappy life and got into an accident and suddenly her life changed to become so perfect.
If you’ve seen the movie “13 Going 30” you will recognize the plot of this book.
The first few chapters were some kind of boring, when Lexi ( the character ) trying to figure out how on earth her life was so perfect.
It was like reading the few chapters of ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows’ where Harry and his friends just keep on migrating from one place to another, came adrift and not having any clue where should they go to find the Horcruxes.
But, towards the end, the story is starting to become interesting… ( the time when Jon starts to appear I guess.. =P )
Trying not to become a spoiler, this is the synopsis which you’ll find it at the back of the book;
“Lexi wakes up in a hospital bed after a car accident, thinking it’s 2004 and she’s a twenty-five-year-old with crooked teeth and disastrous love life. But, to her disbelief, she learns it’s actually 2007 – she’s 28, her teeth are straight, she’s the boss of her department and she’s married to a good-looking millionaire!
But as she learns more about her new self, chinks start to appear in the perfect life. All her old friends hate her. A rival is after her job. Then a disheveled, sexy guy turns up…. and lands a new bombshell.”
After all, my best Sophie Kinsella’s book is still ‘ Can You Keep a Secret?”
